The present work designed to utilize Melia azedarach seed oil (MASO), a renewable resource in the synthesis of methacrylic acid modified poly(ester amide) resins (MAMAPEA). The poly(ester amide) (MAPEA) was synthesized by the polycondensation reaction between fatty amide diol of MASO obtained by the aminolysis with diethanol amine and phthalic acid. The MAPEA reacted with methacrylic acid in different per hundred of resin (phr) to obtain MAMAPEA polymeric resins. The polymeric resins were characterized by measuring the physicochemical properties and spectral analyses. The Physicomechanical and corrosion/chemical resistance performances of the MAMAPEA containing different phr of methacrylic acid evaluated to find out the optimum amount of methacrylic acid. It has been observed that MAMAPEA-20 contain 20 phr of methacrylic acid shows the best performance among different MAMAPEA polymeric resins.
